Witty insight into the admissions process....Smartly satirical, providing hilarious solutions to real problems....Filled with various charts and diagrams that will get your children into Harvard (after deferment, of course). Altogether..a smart, wry look at the process.

Received from Goodreads to review.
My review is simple. "The Neurotic Parent's Guide to College Admissions" should be required reading for every parent out there who has any dreams of their children attending college, even if you've already been thru it before! I only wish I'd had this little gem on my nightstand long ago for constant referral. In reading this book, I've laughed, I've cried and I've realized that I've failed my children miserably on just about every level!
Incredibly funny and chalk full of sarcasm, wit and a wealth of worthy information, The Neurotic Parent's Guide shares what every parent should know about the college search AND their role in their children's lives. It takes to task the ridiculousness of the college admissions process and offers us a good laugh at some of what may never change, but has no rhyme or reason that allows mere mortals to understand. I LOVE this book.. and am incredibly jealous of its sure fire success.
*For those who believe that college admissions is no joking matter, I understand. And is why it's even more important for you to read this book! Seriously. Go. Buy. Now!
Who knew you could make such great (and yet weirdly respectful) fun of getting into college in it's daunting current form? I bow down to Mr/Ms. Rothman's wit and wisdom.
I'm biased because I'm the publisher-- but the reason I'm the publisher is that I've been through this twice with my own kids, and I found Rothman so hilarious that I HAD to publish her book!
